With the Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update, we saw several balance changes take place. While the EBR-14 sniper didn't actually receive any buffs, there's a new meta forming in Verdansk, with several popular players saying how broken the best EBR-14 one-shot loadout is. As has become tradition, famous Call of Duty content creator, Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff has tested out this "one-shot" EBR-14 loadout in a recent video, and the results were not perfect.

The "one-shot" EBR-14 loadout

A shot to the head with the EBR-14 can do roughly 225 damage, which means that technically, it can kill an opponent with one shot. However, NICKMERCS doesn't believe this loadout is broken. 

In fact, NICKMERCS states: "Hey, I'm going to be honest man, this thing's trash. I was seeing Swag and a couple of others talking about this thing like it's broken."

Despite NICKMERCS not liking the EBR-14 (it is close to the bottom of our Sniper/Marksman tier list) he didn't do too bad at all. However, the claims of the EBR-14 loadout offering one-shot kills might be a bit exaggerated.

The best EBR-14 loadout using all the right attachments to get a one-shot headshot kill is:

  • Barrel: FORGE TAC Precision 22.0
  • Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Ammo: 20 Round Mags

Check out the video below where NICKMERCS using the best "one-shot" EBR-14 loadout to varying degrees of success.

While it is evident this loadout can work, there are more effective sniper rifles out there. However, those who love the EBR-14 should test this one out, as it is likely the best one for this weapon.

So there you have it, the best "one-shot" EBR-14 loadout to use in Warzone Season 3. While it might not actually deliver one-shot kills most of the time, you can kill an opponent with one bullet if you get a clean headshot using this loadout.
